Im sure many of you remember the classic clip of Robbie Fleck being tackled from behind a few years back then coughing up the ball as he was crossing the tryline? Todays Ive got a similar clip for you, from an under 20 league game, where the young flyers celebrations are just a tad bit premature.
Yes its rugby league, the form of the game that some rugby fans arent too fond of. The way this try is butchered though could happen in either code.
Its the U20 Vodaphone Junior Warriors against the U20 South Sydney side in Australia and as Souths chip ahead they knock on for gasman Glen Fish Fisiiahi to collect and race away.
He sprints nearly 80m untouched before his celebration comes to an abrupt end as he is hit from behind, only to cough up the ball and learn the hard way that its probably a good idea to get it down before doing the hand gestures and salutes to the crowd.
Souths scored shortly after that, adding insult to injury, but luckily for the Fish, a late kick at goal won the game for his side, 19-18.
Take a look at the related posts for a few similar fluffs, including the Fleck incident that's mentioned earlier.
